Pakistan Navy is playing a crucial role in achieving national economic interests by defending the country’s maritime boundaries as well as providing security at Gwadar Port and CPEC sea routes, he added.

The Governor Punjab said that we are also proud of the fact that whenever India has done any violation of Pakistan territorial waters, the Pakistan
Navy has always given a befitting response and reduced India’s pride to dust.

The nation salutes the sacrifices of the martyrs of the Pakistan Navy.

He said that Pakistan has the best Armed forces in the world who are always ready to sacrifice their lives for the protection of the country’s borders and have always given a befitting response to the country’s adversaries. Pakistan is capable of defending every single inch of its borders.

Pakistan’s Armed Forces and people have rendered historic sacrifices to stamp out terrorism and establish peace in the region, he maintained.

Chaudhry Sarwar said that under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan, government has taken historic steps to strengthen institutions and is pursuing a policy of purging all institutions of political interference, adding that the government is implementing all measures to eradicate corruption and money laundering from the country.

Replying to questions regarding national and international affairs, the governor said that Prime Minister Imran Khan has been advocating peace and friendly relations with all the neighbouring countries. Pakistan is playing a positive role in peace in Afghanistan as well.
